Description 

Pistol Pete is similar in character to the other routes to the right of Stone Henge, in that it features a brutally hard start (for the grade) to easier pocket hauling above. The crux is getting to the first bolt, so a stick clip is highly recommended. There are a few decptive pockets near the first bolt, but these are not as good as they look from the ground.

Thin slopey pockets with poor, glassy edges for the feet lead up past the first bolt, where some sinker pockets are eventually reached. Relatively trivial pulls lead on to the top.

Location 

The first route right of the "Stonehenge" shelter. Also the 4th route left of the bush-filled crack on the right end of the wall.

Protection 

Bolts to 2 BA. Stick clip highly recommend for the 1st bolt.
